Hey guys :)

My Taiwanese passport expired. Where in Taipei exactly can I renew it?
I'm only here for 16 more days, I hope I can get it renewed before I part.

I'm guessing the Ministry of Foreign Affairs building, 2nd Floor, JinNan Road just off Zhongshan south road near the NTU hospital
The prizes are a bottle of f*!@#$% SCOTCH and a box of cheap f!@#$#$ CIGARS!

Too many people! Almost all of the world's problems are due to overpopulation. The rest are due to religion.

Aren't you required to get it renewed before you leave Taiwan? I was under the impression that R.O.C. citizens must enter and leave Taiwan on their R.O.C. passports and that it was against the law to enter and leave on other passports if someone holds dual nationality. Didn't you enter Taiwan on your R.O.C. passport?

What. Damnit. No, I used my Swiss passport. I first showed them people at the airport my expired Taiwanese Passport and, after they told me I had to renew it, I thought what the heck I'm le tired and just showed them my Swiss passport.
What course of action would you recommend? I definitely want to keep my Taiwanese citizenship. :heart:

Dual citizens can enter on a foreign passpot but are subject to the laws as a foriegner. Not to be confused with the USA where you must enter on a US passport if you are a US citizen.

That's true if and only if you are not a male between the age of 18-35.

OP, I'm not sure if I got this right: did you get admitted into the country with your Swiss passport? Did you only have a tourist visa? How long a stay did they grant you at immigration?

If you entered the country as a Swiss national then you can exit the country as a Swiss national...I believe. Then you can just renew your passport at your local de facto ROC consulate. I would contact MFA and get the legal details if I were you though.
Apparently I beeeotch a lot about everything on message boards - be forewarned.

If you enter on a foreign passport you must alos leave on the foreign passport.

Of course males between 18 - 35 can leave Taiwan... who said that they cant?
